Get to Know the Iconic Judges of 2024’s ‘Dancing With the Stars Australia’

The 2024 judges of Dancing With the Stars Australia

On Dancing With the Stars Australia, the audience is the ultimate judge. Last year, Australia got to choose if Home and Away’s Emily Weir or Human Nature’s Phil Burton would win this series. After a fierce freestyle by Emily, Phil danced his heart away in a captivating rendition of Wilson Pickett’s Land of 1000 Dances. In the aftermath of these two dances, Australia voted Phil into first place. He won the coveted Mirror Ball trophy and $50,000 for a charity called the NSW Police Legacy.

However, before Australia gets to judge the Dancing With the Stars cast, these celebrities dance before a panel of experts. Their dances are then praised, critiqued, and scored. These judges can even eliminate low-performing contestants.

So, who are the judges on the 2024 season of Dancing With the Stars? What gives them the right to judge this show’s celebrities? Let’s twirl into the details now.
